Kim Simonsson is a finnish ceramic sculptor, living and working in Fiskars, Finland. He graduated in 2000 from the University of Arts and Design with a Master of Arts in Ceramics.
With life-size ceramic “Moss People” sculptures depicting innocent yet beguiling child figures, Kim Simonsson leads the viewer into an imaginative, fairytale-like world inspired by the forests of Finland. His gestures are indeed sublime. Simonsson is a superb sculptor who uses clay with great sensitivity for his subjects.
In 2004 Kim was awarded the Young artist of the year by the Tampere Art Museum
Kim's work can be found in numerous museum collections including the National Museum of Norway, Victoria And Albert Museum and Helsinki City Art Museum.
